Fair Trade fortnight

We have been learning about the importance of giving farmers a fair price for their produce, such as coffee, cocoa and bananas. The fair trade symbol lets us know that farmers have been given a fair price, look for this symbol when shopping. Catholic Social Teaching about Solidarity teaches us that by using these products we are standing together as one with our global family.

At the end of our Fair trade fortnight, we had a raffle to win a hamper filled with Frair Trade goodies. As you can see the children were very pleased with their prizes.
